Oh yes, it helps a great deal.  Thank you very much.  This is what I 
get from /proc/lvm/VGs/vg00/LVs/lv01.  "lv01" is the name I gave to 
the root lv, but having a little more experience now I may change it 
to simply "root" or "rootfs" as this makes things a lot more clear 
when looking at the device entries.

My entry for lv01 (not currently mounted) says this:

# cat lv01
name:         /dev/vg00/lv01
size:         12288000
access:       3
status:       1
number:       0
open:         0
allocation:   0
device:       58:00

So using your example then this would work out to a major:minor 
number (in hex) of 3a:00, this then would go into my grub.conf 
thusly (as I understand your instructions):

title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-4) lvm root file system
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-4 ro root=3a00 ramdisk_size=8192
        initrd /initrd-lvm-2.4.18-4.gz

instead of:

title Red Hat Linux (2.4.18-4) lvm root file system
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.18-4 ro ramdisk_size=8192 
root=/dev/vg00/lv01
        initrd /initrd-lvm-2.4.18-4.gz

Have I got this right now?
